Real Wedding: Preppy Charm in Washington

This adorably sweet preppy chic wedding took place in the quaint town of Port Gamble in Washington state. It originally appeared over on Martha Stewart Weddings, and I loved it too much not to share it's charming goodness! I loved the decor, the flowers, the attire and all of the sweet little preppy details of Melody and Adam's August wedding. 

The bride's friend used local flowers to create her pink bridal bouquet tied with a perfectly preppy navy and white striped ribbon.
The groomsmen wore khaki J.Crew suits and ties with white Jack Purcell sneakers. The bridesmaids wore navy Alfred Sung dresses with punchy pink heels from Nine West.

The bride grew up in Washington, and it was her lifelong dream to get married in the beautiful historic St. Paul's Church.
The reception was held at a friend's home; Custom signs from The Back Porch Shoppe welcomed guests and dotted the buffets. 
 The tables had navy table cloths with sheer striped overlays, mixed vases with flowers, votives, and green apple place cards for a pop of color.
The couple loves cheeseburgers, so a 'make your own burger bar' was the perfect touch for dinner.
The adorable cupcake buffet with a custom 'fresh cupcakes' sign.
All of the cupcakes were from Seattle's Cupcake Royale (one of my fav cupcake bakeries). The cupcakes were chocolate with vanilla frosting, vanilla with vanilla frosting, and the bakery's flavor of the month - lemon with raspberry frosting (the bride's favorite). "We waited all summer to hear about August's flavor, and I was so excited when they chose raspberry lemon," said Melody.
Cupcake Royale includes a cutting cake for couples who order their wedding cupcakes from them, so you don't miss out on the sweet tradition of cake cutting.
